Editors' Review

+

Comodo Dragon is a Chrome-based Web browser with enhanced security, privacy, and stability. Like Chrome, Dragon is free. It's available as a standalone browser or as part of Comodo's antivirus and PC security software. Dragon's unique features include access to Comodo's Secured DNS server network, which enhances privacy and can even speed up browsing in some cases. Recent updates include faster launching and page loading and better graphics rendering.

Pros

Chromium engine: Dragon is built on Google's Chromium browser engine, the same core that the Chrome browser uses.

Google Account: Dragon's compatible with most Chrome extras, including themes, plug-ins, and extensions. You can sign in and access your Google Account from Dragon, too.

Secure: Dragon enhances Chromium's security with unique features like Domain Validation technology, which can tell good SSL certificates from bad ones. Dragon enhances privacy by blocking download tracking.

Cons

Looks: Dragon's start-button menu and streamlined layout break with Chrome's look, but the default style didn't thrill us. Fortunately, Dragon is compatible with many Chrome themes.

Compatibility: Dragon might conflict with other software (including browsers) in certain situations, such as when syncing or importing data from another open browser.

Bottom Line

We've used Comodo Dragon for extended periods, with and without Comodo's antivirus software, and found it different enough from Chrome to be a viable alternative, especially for users who value enhanced security and privacy. Like Chrome, Dragon works best when set up to your satisfaction, but Dragon's added security comes into its own in day-to-day browsing.

    "Too Slow; No Menu"

    September 08, 2014   |   By fredg06

    Version: Comodo Dragon 33.1

    Pros

    None that I could find.

    Cons

    MUCH Slower than Opera, version 12., with no menu bar, and difficult to use.

    Summary

    I have Windows XP, with SP3, and Internet explorer 8.
    I have tried Firefox 26, but it is too slow opening, crashes no matter what I try, and is not worth the effort to use anymore.
    Comodo Dragon is MUCH slower than Opera version 12. It has no easy to use interface, and tries to connect every website with it's home page or elsewhere. It also installs PrivDog without telling you. I denied installing the security.....glad I did.
    I finally used System Restore, then cleaned out Windows Explorer Program Files of those entries. I also found some PrivDog entries in the Registry which I deleted.
    I do NOT advise using Comodo Dragon !!

    "Great Browser"

    July 17, 2014   |   By jal9904

    Version: Comodo Dragon 33.1

    Pros

    Excellent Security.
    Based on chrome.

    Cons

    Privdog disabled cookies so I had to turn them off in the settings.
    Nothing else.

    Summary

    It is a great Web Browser which is now my default. With PrivDog and Comodo Web Inspector it will tell you if a page is infected/unsafe. I like the fact that is is based of chrome.
